The rounded leaves of Calathea orbifolia are beautifully striped with silver and green, giving an elegant, corrugated appearance. The large leaves and bushy habit create a tropical feel in your home making a lovely focal point for a warm, humid spot such as a bathroom or kitchen. Height and spread: 80cm (31").

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

Please note: Some houseplants are toxic or harmful to pets if ingested. If you believe your pet has consumed a poisonous plant then seek veterinary attention immediately. Take a sample of the plant with you.

Position Calathea in a warm room away from cold draughts and radiators, with a constant temperature above 16C (60F). Average room temperatures of 18C (65F) - 24C (75F) are preferable. Calathea require a bright but lightly shaded spot, well away from the direct glare of the sun.
Water Calathea freely between spring and autumn using tepid rainwater where possible, and allowing the pot to drain well after each watering. In winter, reduce watering but do not allow the compost to completely dry out. House plants should be fed regularly between March and September when they are in active growth. Calathea appreciates a humid atmosphere - stand it on a tray filled with pebbles and water. As the water evaporates it will increase humidity around the plant.
